We have lift off for Level 1

We received some great news from our President last night – we will be moving to Level 1 on Sunday night. South Africa’s figures are obviously looking good right now, but we understand that we are not out of the woods just yet. A second wave is a very real possibility, as has been proven elsewhere across the globe.

We are waiting for new Regulation Guidelines to be released by Golf RSA and will keep you up to date with any relevant changes. We want to assure you that Zwartkop will:

Keep up the hygiene standards that have been implemented
Keep up the practice of social distancing
Keep up the wearing of masks in and around the Clubhouse

We ask you to do the same so that we all stay safe and virus free!

Jokers Wild

Come down to the Club tomorrow evening for a drink. Jokers Wild will be starting up again and the pot currently stands at R6230-00!

Two days to go to Club Champs

Did you know that Denis Hutchinson played in 14 Club Championships at three different Clubs, and won every one of them!

Don’t forget to come prepared to participate in the Best Dressed Player competition this weekend. You have to wear at least one item that has the Zwartkop logo on each day – it could be a shirt, cap or glove. The prize is a pair of PUMA Golf Shoes, valued at over R2000!

We’ll have live music after golf each day, so bring your family to support you, and enjoy some good food and drinks. Just remember that if you want to shower after golf you need to bring your own towel!

We’re looking forward to some great golf being played, but more importantly, fun being had and memories being made. Enjoy yourself!

We welcome Desvondes Botes to Zwarties

Desvonde was a child prodigy. In 1991, at the age of 16, he won the SA Amateur, becoming the youngest winner. A year later, he turned professional and in 1993, while still a teenager, he won the Mercedes Benz Golf Challenge.

Although he played on the European Tour, and also tied for the Nokia Singapore Open (which he lost in a play-off), his successes came on the Sunshine Tour where he won 13 times. Unfortunately, back issues caused him to leave the European Tour and limited his schedule on the Sunshine Tour.

Desvonde and his wife have two children and he will be representing Zwartkop Country Club. 

“Uncut” Fairways

The golf shop’s Happiness Molotsane really lives up to her name. In this week’s staff video, she reveals that she’s studying part-time – we bet you never knew that!

Make golf easier and more enjoyable for yourself

Singles Club

Join us for the next Singles Club on Sunday, 18th October.  


Your scoring zone
Trying to outswing your equipment?
Unless you’re playing on tour, using worn out wedges or incorrect lofts that are poorly fitted, is going to mean that up to half of your round is more difficult than it should be.
Are you losing spin and control playing with worn out wedges?
“If you’re playing just once a week, expect your wedges to last for about two years.”
Do you have a wedge set that enables you to play a variety of shots with full control? Or are you trying to fill loft gaps by altering your swing?
Is your golf ball complementing your wedge setup by giving you enough trajectory and spin?
Easier scoring inside 100 metres
Your short-game equipment should be adding control to your scoring shots, not making it more difficult. Let’s schedule some time to go through your equipment and have a look at your swing.
